Our objectives are to provide an international non-biased forum for developing the science and practice of auricular medicine, based on the teachings of Paul Nogier.

The International Association provides a democratic forum for medical practitioners, dentists, physical therapists, acupuncturists and mental health practitioners who have a particular interest in auricular therapy and auricular medicine. Such a continuing dialog in conjunction with local and international meetings should enhance clinical practice skills and encourage formal research.

This website allows you to join an international discussion in the field of auricular therapy through different discussion groups in order to contribute to the knowledge of auricular therapy and to diminish suffering in this world.



The International association for Auricular Medicine (IAAM) was inaugurated at the International Symposium: From Auriculotherapy to Auricular Medicine, Eilat, Israel, November, 1993.



The IAAM publishes a biannual journal,
